Troop 465 is transitioning to a new advancement tracking tool called Scoutbook. Scoutbook is an internet-based tool (web app) that Troop 465 will begin using for keeping track of our members’ contact information, training, and advancement progress. Scouts, parents, and leaders will be able to see a Scout's advancement progress from any computer or mobile device. Each Scout has a profile and advancement record which is maintained by the Troop and the BSA. Each parent and Scout will have a login so both parent and Scout can keep contact information up to date and view advancement progress. In addition Scouts will be able to connect with merit badge counselors and see where they are on any merit badge they may be working on. Parents are given login credentials by the Troop, parents grant login credentials to their Scout.

You should have recieved an invitation to login into Scoutbook from the Troop on Saturday, January 23rd.

Train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship.

Develop personal fitness.

How you can get involved:

VOLUNTEER as a Troop Committee member or Assistant Scoutmaster

GIVE to 465 Alumni Inc. to support Troop 465's sponsor.

  Serving youth for over 50 years, Troop 465 has had a proud heritage of molding boys into men according to the criteria listed above. Our Scoutmaster Emeritus, George Lingefelt, say's "If you want boys to become leaders, you have to train them and then let them lead", and thus began our "boy-lead troop" mind set. Mike Lamanac is our current Scoutmaster and passes these skills on. In fact, Scoutmaster Lamanac is only our 6th Scoutmaster since 1963.

Since 1996, the Troop Sponsor has been 465 Alumni, Inc., dba Friends of Troop 465, a non-profit organization specifically enacted to support Troop 465 both financially and philosophically. Troop 465 has a permanent Scout Hut, on over 3 acres, thanks to the generosity and foresight of 465 Alumni, Inc.

Troop 465 is unique because of the tremendous support from our members and their families. If you would like more information about joining troop 465, please click here.
